Exhibit Opening


The opening reception for the exhibit of Astro-Photography was well attended, especially considering the predictions of icy road conditions.  Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures while people were there, but did get a few shots later.  The first, above, is from the entrance and shows most of the photos.  Mine are along the wall on the right, plus the backlit prints in the rear left corner (where it is darkest).

The front part of the left wall is a collection of 11 prints from Tracy Brown:


Tracy has been a successful photographer for some 50 years and started doing astro-photography with the image of comet Hale-Bopp (3rd from the right) in 1997.  He uses a medium format film camera for most images, which is very unusual today.  It also makes astro-photography considerably more challenging!

Four other photographers also participated with a few images each, displayed on the back wall:


The exhibit will be open until Feb. 24th.  See http://artscouncillo.org/events/ for details.


About Greg Marshall

I am a retired electronics engineer and after a few months of enjoying my leisure I began to miss doing product development. My astronomy hobby always needed new solutions to unique problems, so I decided that whenever I came up with a good solution I would try to make it available to others.
